anyone know of a candy store in L.A. that makes or sells classic New Orleans style pralines?

      I think Little John's in The Original Farmers Market makes it. They have the best English Toffee, that they make almost daily. I'd give them a call.

        I second Littlejohn's. My mother was a praline fanatic. Littlejohn's is a stellar praline.

          At the Altadena Farmer's market there's a food stall selling New Orleans food and he was selling them pralines, although not sure if he made it himself.
